The new E Ink Carta technology delivers a 50% increase in contrast over Pearl E Ink, 20% less reflections, Carta technology is now in the newest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6″ e-reader, and E Ink also shows the new Regal Wave Form technology which removes the need for full page refreshes allowing for faster refreshes for up to a hundred page turns when reading. E Ink also shows a smartwatch based on their flexible E Ink Mobius screen technology. E Ink Mobius screens are flexible and can be custom shaped enabling smaller new form factors. E Ink claims that the CST-1 watch is the thinnest watch in the world at .8mm thick. The E Ink watch amazingly gets a month of battery. Also here’s an A4 sized Mobius display. Sony has there own Mobius display based product designed for education with touch and active digitizer capabilities. E Ink Mobius screens due to their flexibility are much more durable than glass LCDs. Mobius screens currently use E Ink Pearl technology but could in theory upgrade to E Ink Carta. E Ink also shows electronic replacements for paper signs which is useful in retail outlets. Electronic signs enable real time price updates enabling much more accurate pricing which makes consumers more confident in a retailer. The electronic signs can last 5 years on a battery and in theory could operate without batteries.
